Episode 332: Music City Bowl Bound

The matchups are set, flights and hotels booked and we’re all ready to get into Bowl Season! Northwestern will be taking on Kentucky at the Music City Bowl in Nashville in a battle for Wildcat supremacy.  We take a quick look at Kentucky before we get into some of the other big Bowls. We also ride the insanity of the coaching carousel, although as crazy as it’s been, we should maybe call it the coaching roller coaster.  Finally, we check in on hoops as NU gets further into a bit of an odd start to the season. We are your premier Northwestern Sports Podcast! You can download the episode from iTunes or directly from here.
